A Texas Tech student is now in custody for fatally shooting a campus police officer on Monday evening.
According to reports, the suspect, Hollis Daniels, 18, had been brought into the police station following a welfare check. The police reportedly also found “evidence of drugs and drug paraphernalia” in his room.
While at the station, Daniels suddenly shot the officer in the head before fleeing the scene.

The university was placed on a campus-wide lock down until Daniels was apprehended and those in the vicinity were asked to take shelter.
